Big rig friendly with level sites. Stayed in lake site overlooking the Mackinaw Bridge which was great. No dog park but lots of grass to walk dog. Plenty of flat ground to ride bicycle. Showers had hot water but needed updating. No laundry facilities. Had a small swimming pool which stayed crowded due to large campground. Had beach access with swimming in lake. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Mackinaw city was 3 miles away and is a pretty town with shopping and restaurants. Campground provided free shuttle to catch ferry to Mackinaw Island. We went two days to Mackinaw Island and really enjoyed the sites. Walked the island and visited Fort Macinaw and Arch Rock. Walmart was 10 miles.

This is a very large RV park. Very picturesque on the Straits of Mackinaw. The sites range from tiny to decent size and although a very confusing layout, fairly easy to get around. The problem is the restrooms. There is only one for the whole park, and this park is enormous. It can be a 20 minute walk to the restroom. The exact same problem exists for garbage. There are no garbage cans, except at the exit, so you have a 20 minute walk for that. The washroom is very small for a camp ground with hundreds of sites. We would not stay again. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Motorhome.

My wife and I liked this park. It was quiet, and clean. The store, check in, and management of the park seemed well organized. Everyone we talked to was friendly and helpful. Its a large park. Beach at campground is nice. Part of it is rocky, but most is easy access to water. It was a long walk from our site. If that's important to you, try to get nearer to it. I would stay here again. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Campground too large. Everything is far away. The camp store, pool, golf are centrally located but they are still quite far from the outer sites. The roads to get places are very confusing, we got lost several times. There is only one entrance/exit which is also far from the outer sites. There are other roads that could serve as a closer exit but they are blocked off by a chain. The only trash is located at the entrance/exit which is not convenient at all. This campground has so many sites, you definitely don't get the small campground feel that most campgrounds have. However they do have a nice beach area with a view of the bridge. There aren't a whole lot of places that you can walk your dog (lots of the grass areas are marked no dogs), but they do have plans to put in a dog park in the future. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Mackinaw island is beautiful. Great place to ride bikes. You can take your bike on the ferry with you across the island or rwnt one on the island. Pink Pony was a good restaurant on the island as well as Sadies ice cream (try Mackinaw fudge) at the Grand Hotel. Mackinac city downtown has lots of t-shirt/souvenier shops if you like that sort of thing.

This is a huge park (over 1300 sites) with many types of sites and cabins. We had a full hook-up site that was lake view (not lake front). All the hook ups were good and the wifi worked very well. We got a few OTA TV stations. The bathhouse was clean, but pretty far away from some sites. The camp store was well stocked. The roads were paved & site pads were level dirt/rock/grass, each with a picnic table & fire pit. The staff was continually mowing & cleaning. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Travel Trailer.

This is a large place like others have said. Book early if you want a water front or Big Mac bridge view during peak summer dates. Lots of good paved roads to ride your bike on, camp store well stocked, friendly staff. This was our second stay here. Close to downtown & they have a free shuttle service from the park to the docks if going to Mackinaw island. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Travel Trailer.

A must to visit downtown Mackinaw & the island. Visit the old working saw mill just up the road. Free rides on a old fire truck around the park. Bring your bikes to ride around or you can rent them.

We stayed in the campground at the end of the season. They were still quite busy on the weekend. The sites seem to vary in width. Ours was narrow & backed right up to another spot. We did not use any of the amenities there, but they had a large swimming beach that looked very nice. There is a lot of grass along the lake front if you just want to relax & enjoy the view. The location is great if you want to go to Mackinac Island or Mackinac City. You can also cross the bridge & go to some of the places in the upper peninsula. We had good phone service & the internet was also pretty good, but again, the park was not full. We also took a day trip to Charlevoix & Petowsky from there. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Motorhome.

Large, well organized park. Our site was long, wide, and level. Electric and water were fine and sewer hook up was in the right place. There is no cable TV and all but one broadcast channel came in fine. ABC came in but broke up a lot. They went cheap on WIFI by contracting with Tengointernet, so it was customarily slow and often interrupted even with my signal amplifier. All in all, not a bad experience.

The RV park owners also own a golf course about 5 miles away. You can get a discount card at the store or at the check in windows. Park is nice for biking and there is about a mile of lake front which is nice for watching the sunset, the bridge, and the ferry boats and freighters.

Stayed over the Labor Day weekend and it was filled to capacity. Still did not feel too crowded. Place was very clean. We stayed in a "Large FHU spot, #98, facing East in the 3-9 area. It was a double wide spot whereas the folks across the street on the West facing sites were half as wide. They still seemed to be OK with some large rigs in there. We were happy and made reservations for next year already. WifI was worthless, but almost always is in a campground. Cable would be nice. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Motorhome.

They offer discount tickets for the Star Line ferry at the office with free pick-up and drop off service, worth using. We drove through the KOA and it does not compare with Mill Creek, not by a long shot.

Staff-Awesome, Camp Store-Awesome, Fire Truck and Wagon Rides- Awesome. Park Cleanliness -Awesome. Completely booked 600 sites. All was quiet. Speed limit(5MPH) obeyed by all. Sites are close but we had quiet neighbors. 1 site had kids in a tent, parents in camper. SO well behaved just having fun. Wifi- extremely bad even if standing almost under transponder. Pool-Water not much warmer than the lake.

Dump Station -A JOKE. Rinse hose is cut so you can not wash tanks, sewer hose goes in STRAIGHT.. NOT DOWN like normal.. You can NOT have a elbow on it to go down like every other place we have been . You SHARE With someone on other side, same hole. If the other side is open and you put your hose in (STRAIGHT Because its the ONLY Way), YOUR SEWAGE SHOOTS STRAIGHT THRU to their area and pushes their hose out. All your sewage is now on their side. Glad our black tank was full of dish soap. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very large park bordering Lake Huron and 2 miles from Mackinaw City. Check-in was easy, but instructions to site were poor. The map only shows sections, not the individual sites. I did not see our site # written on the map in an odd place until after we passed by our site twice. We booked a Bridge View site, which has only 30 amp service. When I booked thesite, I always give the size of our motor home. I was told we were getting a 75'long x 30' wide site. The length was right, but the width was only 24' ( we measured it). It was extremely narrow, and the picnic table tucked way back on the site was useless, as with our slides out, we did not have enough room to sit there. There was one small spot to put it, but we would have been sitting right next to our neighbors sewer hookup. We had to park our tow car right in front of the rv which gave us a small spot to put ourchairs- next to the car. They have "shrubbery " in between each site (for privacy?) But it was unkempt and overgrown. It also blocked our view of the Bridge if we were inside our RV. The other negatives were: No cablehookup, weak Internet service, and NO laundry facilities! You must go into town for that, which was very nice btw. The nice thing about this park was just across the road from this section of sites, was a very well manicured grassy area that bordered the shore of the lake. There were large firepits all the way up and down, with nice benches, for all to use. Beautiful views of the lake and Mackinac Bridge! Park was pretty well maintained, nice campstore, dumpsters at the front of the park, easy to access. Beautiful cabins to rent, some of them were 2 stories! Again, this is a large park, and we found the getting around to the exit very poorly marked. Staff we encountered were very friendly. Great discounts for Mackinaw Golf Club, which they own, and was a very nice par 72 course. We golfed there 3 times during our stay. Overall, a nice park and we would go back. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Motorhome.

We stayed 1 week, and price reflects weekly, off-season rate.

Campground is located on the shores of Lake Huron; some spots have lake and/or bridge view. Campground is very large (200+ sites) with nicely packed and graded roads. Campsites are a combination of gravel and grass, and ours was fairly level. Each site has a small fire pit, although ours was too close to our motorhome to use safety. There are also public-use fire pits located at the edge of the lake with a beautiful view of the Mackinac Bridge.

Although we were given WiFi passcodes, the WiFi was unusable due to the slow speed (Tengo). We did not use the campground WiFi and used Verizon, instead. Verizon signal was strong and service good.

There was only one set of trash dumpsters located at the front of the park, but because the park is so large, we had to drive our trash to the dumpsters. Also, there are no pet receptacles anywhere in the park, so plan on using your own bags to collect their waste and carrying it with you throughout their entire walk (yuck)!

The campground is only a couple of miles from Mackinac City, and if you are planning on visiting the island, one of the local ferries provides shuttle service several times a day directly from the campground.

All in all, although we prefer small campgrounds, we would consider returning sometime again. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Motorhome.
